This past week, I've been going to tutoring, working, dancing, and doing homework. I have finished everything excluding the final draft of my thesis and its presentation, which is great because it means that I can focus on the thesis this week. For my jazz final, which is this Wednesday, two other girls and I choreographed a dance to the song Domino by Jessie J. I don't have our dance recorded, however, the song is good so you should still listen to it. :)
Last Thursday, I went to the Milwaukee Art Museum for my Choreography and Repertory class. It was really cool! They had dancers there from the Wildspace Dance Company based in Milwaukee performing in one of the exhibits. It was really cool to see dancers making art in front of art. :) Our assignment while there was to observe the dancers and write a short review and also we were told to choose a piece of art in the museum and choreograph our own dance based on the artwork. I chose a painting called It's Raining Anita Huffington by Larry Rivers. It's actually really funny that I chose this painting because I googled the name Anita Huffington out of curiosity and it turns out that she was a sculptor who studied dance under Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham, who are two very well known choreographers that I have learned about in several of my dance classes. Anyway, it was a fun assignment and I'm really happy with the painting I chose.

I went shopping to buy a new outfit for my presentation and if I do say so myself, it's adorable! Thank you JCPenney! Also, I watched Iron Man and Iron Man 2, which are both fantastic movies and I love Robert Downey, Jr. And no, I haven't seen The Avengers yet, however I heard that it's really good and worth seeing!! I also went bowling where I got my butt kicked. Well actually, I didn't do too bad for not bowling in awhile. I bowled a 102 the first game and a 99 the second game. Although when you compare my score with the 257 bowled by my friend Ian, who brought his own shoes and two bowling balls with him, my score is pretty pathetic. However, it was still REALLY fun!!!!

Okay, on to this week, like I said, I finished my written paper for my thesis tonight, which is a huge accomplishment!! I still have to proof and revise it, but I will be meeting with a tutor to do that and then it's due on Sunday!! My thesis presentation is scheduled for Thursday and that's practically all I have to work on this week! So I have a couple more days to prepare that and then my semester is practically over!!! It's soooo exciting!!!! Well, I will probably talk to you next week and let you know how everything went!! Wish me luck!! :) Happy Tuesday!
